RP Paradise

Welcome to a true angler’s fishing paradise – RP Paradise, to be precise! This company was founded with the intention to provide marvelous trips for sport fishing enthusiasts. Their aim is to be efficient, professional, and experts in this area. A trip with them can also be a journey to the past, as they can show you how to use traditional inshore fishing techniques.

Once you meet the captain at Portimão Marina, you’ll climb on board a 41’ Rodman. This spacious boat accommodates up to 10 guests, so bring all of your fishing buddies along. The boat is perfect for fishing as it has great maneuverability and makes catching easier. Powered by twin 1000 HP Volvo engines, the boat is not only super fast, but it also has a low percentage of CO2 emissions.

Try out the old fashioned way of fishing! Instead of rods and reels, you’ll be using a traditional hand line. For this method, you’ll also need live bait, which you will catch on your way to the main fishing spot. Contemporary fishing equipment is also available, allowing you to go far offshore to catch Marlin and Bluefin Tuna, or stay close to the shore and target Squid or Cuttlefish.

RP Paradise offers lots of different types of trips, so it all depends on your technique preferences or if there’s any specific type of fish you want to reel in.

The crew will provide everything you need when it comes to your fishing equipment. All trips cover drinks, while during full day trips, snacks and lunch are also included in the price. Bring your sunscreen, sunglasses, and anything else you might need to make this trip more comfortable.

Aboard this stunning boat, use state-of-the-art equipment, and catch the fish of a lifetime!

Captain Pedro runs this charter with his brother Rui Santos. This is a family business and they learned all they know about fishing from their grandfather. They started fishing when they were 12 years old and never stopped. They have been licensed since 2009. Both captains love to teach people how to fish, especially hand line fishing.
